Clean and comfortable hotel, as good location as it gets in Hamilton centre, great service with the valet parking, and a well priced continental breakfast with coffee. Only a one night stay but recommended.

Hamilton City Evening

Posted Jan 12, 2017
Pros: People People People. They treated you like an honoured guest. Facility was clean and well apointed.
Cons: n/a
Location: The Heart of Hamilton is revitalising. Great place to be close to food, shopping, theatres and sporting facilities.
Drove up and gave the keys to the valet and were given the room key with a smile. Room was perfect. Freshened up from the day and then found a bar for a pre dinner drink. A new bar on Victoria Street oposite the hotel. Walked the streets looking for a restaurant and then found the Victoria Street Bistro. First question was the dreaded have you booked followed by a smile and being shown to a table for two at the back of a empty room. Within a half hour the place was full and the food and service told us why. Great Food Wine and wonderful service. Could have been central New York, London or Paris. Recommend this place at 153 Victoria Street. Might pay to book in advance. Woke up with a smile refreshed and ready for a quick breakfast and a quick check out and away.

Lovely hotel very handy being in CBD

Posted Jan 11, 2017
Pros: Great locality, very friendly staff, @ breakfast I noticed two of the staff chatting & having a laugh, nice to see happy @ work.
Cons: The serving area where we had breakfast looked a little small, if there were big groups might be a tight squeeze. Although it seemed to work okay.
Location: Location couldn't get better, shops & malls literally across the road, driving range 5mn drive.
Staff of Novatel very friendly & helpful we had a very nice breakfast, great variety. Very handy to shops, my husband went to driving range so I went and had a pedicure, literally across the road from hotel. Had a dabble @ the casino, had fun, we live in the country so don't experience this often. we live approx an hour & half travel away, so handy for a weekend getaway.

Staff pleasant but unresponsive to customers - had to wait in a queue with other guests for 10 mins to get plates at breakfast buffet (after asking three separate staff); waited 30 mins for espresso coffees; very slow check out and car valet service

Modern hotel next to riverside park

Posted Dec 1, 2016
Stayed one night. Check in staff was cheerful and very helpful. Room was clean and well kept, definitely value for money. Car parking ($20) was at the adjacent building due to insufficient space at the premises but was convenient. Three restaurants across from the hotel provide additional food options. Riverside park next to hotel was a great place for a morning or evening stroll.
